Keith Piper is a Black British artist of international significance and Beaconsfield is proud to have comissioned Mic Drop, the latest digital work in the artist's oeuvre, for BGV's cavernous Arch Gallery. The new work is contextualised by the first London screening of Unearthing the Banker's Bones (2016), an Arts Council Collection 70th Anniversary commission.

Working with the frisson and anxiety associated with futurological speculation, the exhibition brings Piper's recent research and experience as an early pioneer of digital art to bear on current preoccupations in the information age.
